I had another real mess up with FTP.
I had a live site, fairly high traffic and established. My main dev system had a disk failure. Basically the HDD was toast. Installed hew drive, os etc then was in the process of getting my files back. I decided to copy the files from the site to local system. Its amazing how similar the word download and delete look to tired eyes.
The moral to that story is backups. I now have a solid routine for backup and recovery.
I did manage to recover the site, but it took days and I had to use recovery software to try and find the site on the crippled disk.
Not an experience I enjoyed.
